The 2020 Holberg Debate: ‘Is Global Stability A Pipe Dream?’ with Yanis Varoufakis

At the 2020 Holberg Debate, Amb. John Bolton and Member of the Hellenic Parliament Yanis Varoufakis will discuss current threats to regional and global stability.

The Holberg Debate is an annual event organised by the Holberg Prize. The debate is inspired by Ludvig Holberg’s Enlightenment ideas and aims to explore pressing issues of our time. The Holberg Debate seeks to engage both the university community and the public at large, and we look to invite well known thinkers with a diverse background, including academics, journalists, authors, film makers and activists.

At the 2020 Holberg Debate, we are joined via videolink by Yanis Varoufakis and Ambassador John Bolton (US), former National Security Advisor and US Ambassador to the UN. Moderator for the event is Scott Gates, Professor of Political Science at the University of Oslo (UiO), as well as Guest Researcher at UiO’s Department of Economics and Research Professor at Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO).

Make sure to tune in to one of the most highly anticipated events of the year!

You can submit questions via Twitter, at any time before or during the event. Tweet your questions with the hashtag #Holberg2020.
